Here's something I often wonder when it comes to roleplaying and music; am I the only one who feels like they listen to strange music when they're roleplaying? Or you find yourself listening to music that doesn't seem to really fit what you're writing but somehow it just fits?

Sometimes yes, so much this. I tend to compile the things I come across or that are in my listening to already category that fit characters even if it seems off.

All the dang time Phoenixrisen LOL, like I listen to a song that fits the RP but every song after that is just weird trance like music. >.<

I frequently hit shuffle on a genre of music on my Spotify and find songs out of the blue that fit, but I can't put my finger in the exact reason why and quickly add it to their playlist (if I have one). Sometimes I think it's songs my characters like themselves I'm adding.

When I'm actually role playing I don't listen to music. Noise in general tends to be a distraction when I'm in the middle of a RP.

Now, I do use songs as an inspiration for ideas and character development. Some songs resonate with me to a point where I'm listening to it and I go "oh hey that would be my character's theme song" or "oh hey this is what would be playing if they were in a fight scene". I do try to save those songs. I have a ton of YouTube bookmarks as a result. :P

I've got a few playlists saved for certain fandom's that I always look forward to roleplaying~ For example if I can find someone that want to do an Inuyasha roleplay, I have a few tracks saved from the anime that I'll listen too when writing.

Otherwise when it comes to OC roleplaying, I tend to listen to either jazz or instrumental music because anything will lyrics tends to distract me from writing. XD

I don’t generally listen to music when I’m writing, but I do occasionally attach songs or pieces of music to a post to complement the scene.

Usually it’s because I’ve heard a song and a particular RP, character or scene has popped into my head, and I’ve found that it just fits. Once or twice, I’ve even written a scene to “follow” the music so that certain musical cues occur as the reader reaches particular paragraphs. Though of course, it all depends on people’s writing speed!
